TEXAS 2020/2021
ELOPEMENT PACKAGE GUIDE

DSC_7528.jpg

If you always thought eloping had to be limited to saying your vows at a courthouse, taking a few photos, and calling it a day, I am so stoked to be the one to tell you that your elopement is so much more!

Why elopements are so special to me?

I eloped, I know the feeling, I loved the feeling, and I want to encourage every and any of my couples to not let anyone tell them they can't have the most amazing wedding day when eloping.

Seriously though, if I had a penny for every person I know who said I was going to regret eloping, I would have quite a bit of extra money in my savings account. Bottom line, I had and have zero regrets. I freaking loved eloping, and every time I look at our photos, I relive our entire day and it brings me so much joy! 

 

So if eloping is what you feel is right for you, don't let anyone say otherwise. Your wedding day should be about you, celebrating your beautiful love story. It should be authentic to who you are and what you enjoy doing. 

 

No compromise, no rigid timeline, no traditions that make you uncomfortable, no having to change your vows to make them 'acceptable." 


So yeah, I am really passionate about eloping and it being a legitimate wedding day! Nothing less, nothing more - ok maybe a little more unique and a little more badass. I am biased :) 

 

Ok Sara - we got it elopements are the best,what's next? 

  1.   I want you to look at each other and really envision what your perfect elopement day looks to you - really think about it from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to bed, basically imagine a perfect day together straight out of your dreams  

  2. Then I want you to write your vision down on a piece of paper so when we talk on the phone, you have it handy and we can start a conversation about how to make your vision come to fruition. PS: if all you know so far is that you want to elope, that's perfectly fine. I am a local Texan since 2019 and have visited every national park and many surrounding state parks too so basically, I am full of ideas

  3. We set up another phone call to discuss, unless you rather just email me the package of your choice

  4. After our phone call, if you already decided we are a good match (Yay!!) I will send over a contract for you to sign to lock your date and then the fun begins

  5. I will send you a questionnaire to get to know you better - I don't want us to feel like strangers on your elopement day - it will also help me craft an elopement tailored to your personalities 

  6. A month later, I will send you dream location suggestions - unless you already have the perfect spot in mind

  7. Then, I will help you build a timeline for the most EPIC DAY!

  8. Last, you show up and have an EPIC DAY!

Yep, really. It is your Wedding Day we are talking about, right? Not your Wedding Hour? 

So why sell yourself short?

 

I want you to get excited and be excited all day long about this beautiful adventure you are embarking on. I want you to be on this marriage "love cloud" as long as possible, and once the day is over, I want it to become this unforgettable memory. 

 

Every anniversary I want you to remember your elopement as this fantastic first day as husband and wife. I want you to look back at your photos thinking “OUR WEDDING DAY WAS FREAKING AMAZING and SO PERFECTLY US!!”

 

I know how excited I am to show and tell my little daughter the amazing adventure her dad and I had when we eloped in Wyoming. I want you to feel the same way about your elopement experience. Make it unique, make it authentic, make it memorable. 

 

So if you are into rock climbing, make it part of your day. Horse lovers, let's go horse back ride. Did you meet camping, let's go to your favorite campsite. Are you foodies? Hire a private chef to make you the most amazing personalized wedding luncheon or dinner. Are you nature lovers, but hiking isn't your thing, many parks don't require hiking to enjoy beautiful scenery. 

You get my point: the possibilities are endless. 

And I will be there every step of the way to guide you and help you craft your perfect day.

 

When you hire me, you get an all-inclusive package: you hire a photographer, but also a planner, a travel agent and guide, and a cake connoisseur ˜cause I take cake super seriously and elopements deserve cake too, am I right? or am I right?  

A FULL DAY SARA? REALLY?
